SPRING ONLY APPLICATION PROCESS
Applying for housing at Texas A&M University is done by logging into myHousing Portal using your NetID and password. Don’t have a NetID and password? Visit the Howdy Portal and select Activate Your Account. The Housing Application usually opens in mid-September.
Please refer to our Getting Started page for helpful information before starting your online housing application, then follow the steps below.
If you have questions navigating through the portal or you believe there is an error, please contact us at 888.451.3896.
Step by Step Application
Step 1: Apply for Housing
To begin, log into myHousing Portal using your NetID and password, click on Housing Applications, and select the Spring Only term.
You will sign the contract, provide your housing preferences, and fill out a lifestyle questionnaire. We encourage you to take a look at all we have to offer.
Residence Life offers six different types or styles of residence hall living: ramp-style, balcony-style, corridor-style, commons-style, modular-style, and Hullabaloo Hall. These living styles feature many of the same amenities, but each differs in concept. Not only will we ask you for your hall preference, but also your room type.
We also offer an extraordinary apartment community at the heart of the Aggie experience. Our fully-furnished White Creek Apartments community is on west campus near the Agriculture and Life Sciences Buildings and White Creek. When choosing White Creek Apartments, we will ask you to provide your floor plan preferences.
Step 2: Receive Your Assignment
The Housing Assignments Office does room assignments on a first-come, first-serve basis. Therefore, you will be assigned in the order in which your application was completed. Please know that your preference does not guarantee your desired housing style will be available at the time you are issued a housing assignment. However, we will do our best to match your preferences throughout our process. You will receive your assignment via email before the Spring semester starts, typically the first week of January.
Step 3: Complete Annual Housing Orientation
What does it mean to live on campus? Well, it’s a lot more than having a place to sleep. It’s your home while you’re here. The place where you hang out with friends. Talk to your roommates. Study. Kick back. Relax. Store your stuff. Sleep. Eat. It’s your own space.
For that reason, we ask all students living in our on-campus communities to complete the Annual Housing Orientation, which will appear as a menu item in myHousing Portal after you have confirmed your room reservation.
You will need to have completed this orientation in order to receive your key upon check-in. Check your Texas A&M email in late December to early January for specific instructions.
Step 4: Schedule Move-In Appointment
We are very excited to welcome you to Residence Life at Texas A&M University! All on-campus residents must schedule a move-in appointment. This enables us to make sure everything is ready for your arrival. Choose a day and time for your arrival within myHousing Portal after you complete the Annual Housing Orientation.
To help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, move-in information will be posted on our website throughout the summer. Don’t forget to check your Texas A&M email frequently so you don’t miss important emails – such as more detailed instructions for move-in based on your apartment or hall.
Information about early move-in, early-arrival requests, what to bring, what not to bring, and important dates for residence halls and White Creek Apartments can be found on our Move-In Information page. Of course, you can always contact the appropriate office if you have additional questions or concerns before you arrive. We will see you in Aggieland!
